++++

TUES, 27/01, 6 PM SAVE THE NATURE!
Deforestation and the resulting soil erosion cause significant environmental problems in Cambodia. International and Cambodian filmmakers join hands to create public awareness. See the works of Jocelyn and Ben Pederick (PREY LONG), Estelle Dorides (CAMBODIANA), Allan Michaud (SERENGETI OF ASIA) and inform yourself about the next Environmental Film Festival 2009.

WED, 28/01, 6PM THE NEW KHMER KIDZ
The exceptional situation of children in Cambodia due to the long period of war, isolation and chaos has made life difficult for those most vulnerable. A big number of NGOs are focusing on their upbringing. International filmmakers document their efforts. Watch their short docs (such as DEY KRAHOM by Eric Lofting) tonite at MH and get to know representatives of different NGOs for kids.

THUR, 29/01, 6PM BARAKA & DOGORA
Without words, cameras show us the world, with an emphasis not on "where," but on "what's there." BARAKA (6PM) by Ron Fricke features a number of long tracking shots, including one through Tuol Sleng in Cambodia. Patrice Leconte's DOGORA (8PM) is clearly inspired by Fricke's masterpiece: It captures the daily routines of the people of Cambodia. Your imagination must answer any questions you may have…

FRI, 30/01, 6 PM CAMBODIAN LIVING ARTS
Cambodian Living Arts (a project of the NGO World Education) works to support the revival of traditional Khmer performing arts and to inspire contemporary artistic expression. The award-winning documentary THE FLUTE PLAYER by Jocelyn Glatzer tells the compelling story of CLA-founder Arn Chorn-Pond; Choun Sarin's short doc SBAEK THOM focuses on "Big Shadow Puppetry". CLA will present traditional live music.

SAT, 31/01, 6 PM THE NU SOUND OF PHNOM PENH
Premiere of the short docs PHNOM PENH GOES BAROQUE & PHNOM PENH LIVE (in coop. with Goethe Institute/Art Plus Foundation) and the best of NU CAMBODIAN INDIE VIDEOS.
